About Jane

Hi, I am Jane and I own and manage this wonderful villa at Kissimmee, Florida. I have three boys age from 2 to 8. All of them love this house and enjoy their vacation here. We recently upgraded the floor and the game room in the house. We are looking for more plans to decorate this house into a dream vacation house for our guests. I sincerely hope this house can be a sweet and cozy home for you when you stay in Disney area. I strive to manage you stay to fit for your budget with providing your good service and making your vacation a life long lasting memory full of happiness.

Jane purchased this villa in 2013

Why Jane chose Kissimmee

Location! Location! Location! The house is very close to Disney Theme Parks and the Hwy 192, the center business area of Kissimmee.

What makes this villa unique

This house is located at one of the biggest lots, which provides an absoutely private distance away from neighbor's house. Enjoy an easy and fast access to major hight ways and main attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome. Thank you for everything. We are absolutely satisfied in your home and I will be sure to say so. We will definitely be using you again.

Great Orlando Property

wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

the location cannot be beat! We were not even ten minutes to the parks. The home has everything you need to be comfortable. Plenty of room for 10+ people. close to shopping as well. We had a few minor issues that Jane was made aware of and handled. We would rent again.

Your experience (public)

My family and I enjoyed our stay in this house October 1st through the 5th. Staying in a house, rather than a hotel, allowed us much more family time and made our trip much more enjoyable. Although we had 7 adults and 4 small children the house was surprisingly roomy and comfortable for a large family. Because we had planned to save money by cooking and eating in, I was pleasantly surprised to find the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pots, pans, etc. So many times, we find that is not the case. Many rentals have minimal or broken furnishings making it difficult to prepare meals for several people. Although the pool was little cool with it being October, we had expected that and really didn't have much time for swimming anyway. We got in with the grand babies a time or two and that was plenty. Best of all the house was very central to Disney World,restaurants, shopping, and necessities.

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot for taking your time to review. I am pleased that you had wonderful time in our vacation rental house. We are always trying hard to serve our guests best from both our service and guests' budget perspectives. Your comment is precious to us and it will keep us improve our service continuously. Thanks a lot for understanding us as a vacation rental homeowner since your are also a homeowner. You can easily understand how much work to do for running a rental property. As you know, no rental property is the same and no guests are the same. So we always run the business according to our guests' need. Most guests staying in this house are relatively big groups with 10 to 14 people. Among them, most come with little kids. So we set up some kid equipment such as a full crib and playpens and we also prepare spare beds such as futons and airbeds. These facilities are not fancy and luxury but do serve the purpose for our guests. We also provide several high chairs and strollers for groups with little ones. A Disney trip is a great memory for little ones and they can cherish Disney experience forever. We hope guests enjoy these facilities. Of course we do have some inefficiency on running the rental business. We are trying to find these issues and actively resolving them. You are so considerate and organized. We appreciate you kept the house clean. Our cleaning service mentioned it was an easy clean for them after your checked out. They hope we can always have guests like your group. Thanks again. We do welcome all of our early guests can provide constructive reviews and comment like you. Hopefully we can have chance to serve your group and your friends in the future.

Perfect for large group

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much for the use of your home. Fit my family of 11 perfect ( 6 adults and 5 kids). Much better than separate hotel rooms.

Jane answered all of my emails quickly.

Great location, close to Disney and Universal along with restaurants and stores. Would love to rent this home again next year.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED :)

Thank you for making our 1st Florida vacation special!!!!!

BETTER THAN A HOTEL!!!

  • 4 of 5

My first experience with Homeaway and I can say it was great. The rental was wonderful. The house fit the family very nice. Enough beds/baths, and towels for everyone. So much better than a hotel - There was a issue with the pool. We appreciate your immediate response with the pool - the kids absolutely love it and swam in it everyday. They enjoyed the pool so much more when it was warmer :) Thanks. We loved the view to the lake and enjoyed feeding the birds.

Location is very close to all Disney parks which was one of the factors that helped us decide on this house.

Will use HomeAway for future rentals - Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you for honest comment. I am pleased that you enjoyed your time in my house. That is my number one goal to help my guests spend less and enjoy more. I hear a lot of good comments from my guests but you are among several groups willing to tell your true feeling and suggestion, which greatly encourages my small business and helps improving our service. Nothing is more important than guests’ satisfaction. Thanks for selecting my house and trusting me through the platform of Homeaway. I believe we are able to serve our guests better through our diligent work. Look forward to your future visit.
